If you know me, you know that I LOVE all of Anastasia’s Products. When she came out with her foundation sticks I was thrilled. To your surprise, I fell in love with the foundation as well. Coverage is buildable and I use a synthetic foundation buffing brush to apply and set it with a wet beauty blender. You always want to make sure you use the right tools for this product. If you have dry to combination skin, use a beauty oil first then apply the foundation. If you have oily prone skin, make sure that you set the foundation. They are multi-purposeful and can be used for contour and highlight as well.
Oil Recommendation: ABH beauty Oil, Josie Argon Or Boscia Beauty Oil!!
Setting Powder: Kat Von D Transluncent powder or Laura Mercier Translucent
Huda Beauty lashes in ‘Monique’ to complete a natural eye makeup look. Pair it with a simple black liner & complete the look with Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in soft brown. Use the black duo and go over the lashes with one coat of your favorite mascara. I used the Armani eyes to kill mascara.
Okay. I. Am. Obsessed.
The Anastasia Beverly Contour Kit paired with the MAC 163 flat contour brush. These should be on your list to buy the next time you stop by a beauty store.
The Anastasia Contour kit comes with 6 shades: three for highlighting and three for contouring. The powders are soft and easy to blend. It will help define and sculpt your features. You can create a natural and heavier glam look with this product which is amazing. It’s also refillable which is convenient.
The colors: Java, Vanilla, Fawn, Havana, Banana, Sand.
Now lets talk about this contour brush. AMAZING. Just go out and buy it and you will thank me later. It makes your contouring seamless and easy. The 163 flat brush has synthetic bristles and will help shape/sculpt your features using cream or powder.
Why pair these two products together? Well, after much play time with different tools, I found these two products worked best together. I’ve seen a lot of reviews talking about the contour kit going on too ashy and leaving streaks. If you use the right tools you’ll get great results. Use the MAC 163 brush to apply your product and blend with the MAC 168 large angled contour brush.

Need ideas for an upcoming event for the holidays? Well here I went with a more classic red tone lip from Giorgio Armani ‘Rouge Ecstasy 402’ . This lipstick is not only long lasting, but it’s hydrating as well. I recommend you picking up ANY shade in this collection, as you will love it as much as I do. On my eyes I have the Holographic Lit Kit in silver, which you can pick up from any Sephora store. Liner is the Bobbi Brown Gel Liner in ‘Black Ink’. Brows by Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz. Try this look out and let me know what you think.
